We are passionate about prayer. It keeps us close to God and in step with His plan and purpose for His church. In every meeting, at every event, in every circumstance, we pray.
"Pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people." [Ephesians 6:18]
We have a team of people who help us to pray and lead many of the activities below. Prayer is not just for the 'super-spiritual' or the staff team, but all of God's people as our spiritual breath.

There are a number of ways through which we express our love for prayer:
We're meeting on zoom on alternate Wednesday mornings 7:30-8am starting 14th October. The zoom link is: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/243160649.
Each month, we hold an evening prayer meeting on the first Friday of every month to get together and pray for issues, globally and nationally. The zoom link is: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/243160649
Each Lent we have a weekly prayer series introducing people to different and reflective styles of prayer (similar to our monthly prayer). Previous years have been on themes such as 'Giving up' and the Upper Room narrative in John 13-17.
Each year we join in with the global prayer movement Thy Kingdom Come. Between Ascension and Pentecost we spend 10 days praying for more people to know Jesus Christ.
All the St James midweek groups commit to modelling prayer throughout their meetings and ministry. Our hope is that individuals are enriched in their prayer lives while serving their unique God-given purpose and calling on their life.
